Brief Introduction:

Piroctone olamine is a highly effective anti-dandruff agent and can be widely used in anti-dandruff shampoo, hair care lotion, conditioner and other hair care cosmetics.

Mechanism of Action:

The mechanism of piroctone olamine in removing dandruff and relieving itching is to fundamentally block the external channels of dandruff production through sterilization and antioxidant effects, thereby effectively curing dandruff and relieving itching, rather than temporarily eliminating dandruff from the surface through degreasing, etc. This is one of the reasons why piroctone olamine's anti-dandruff and relieving itching performance is superior to similar products.
